Watching this scale model of an Airbus A310 fly is truly amazing

Martin Müller is a airplane modeling genius. He made this perfectly functional Airbus A310-200 at a 1:22 scale and flew it during an indoor airshow in Leipzing, Germany, three years ago. Yes, the video is old, but I'm sure there is people like me who haven't seen it yet—and that's inexcusable because it's great.
